Researchers from all population science disciplines are encouraged to apply (e.g., epidemiology, behavioral science, health services, and clinical research).
The CPC Program includes 35 faculty members conducting research across the cancer control spectrum, including quality of life during and after cancer treatment, cancer-related health disparities, genetic counseling and testing, health outcomes, tobacco use, cancer screening, and cancer biomarker development. There are numerous opportunities for collaboration with faculty throughout Georgetown University, including the School of Medicine, The O’Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law, the McCourt School of Public Policy, and the School of Nursing and Health Studies.
Additional resources include access to one of the largest regional consortia of cancer treatment providers and patients in the U.S., spanning DC, Maryland, and New Jersey. Shared resources include biostatistics and bioinformatics, participant recruitment, clinical research management, genetics/genomics, and numerous other biomedical resources.
